Bring on the water pressure
An article in the Feb. 17 edition of The Cary News discussed the issue with Carys water-pressure problems, especially in future projects that will include highly elevated buildings.
The article stated that boosting local water pressure could add $1 million to the price tag of The Mayton Inn.
The Mayton Inn is one of the projects the town of Cary invested in, to add tourism downtown. Although the water-pressure problem will cost the town a significant amount of money, it will help Cary with its tourism, and will provide more living areas without wasting land.
If the buildings are unable to receive water vertically, they would have to expand horizontally, decreasing the space available for forests, parks, and farms. According to the projects developer, Why would you want to buy in downtown for a reasonable but high price, and have to put in $500,000 to a million dollars or more in pumps?
If money is spent to fix the water-pressure problems, employment rates will increase because more plumbers, mechanics and other workers would be needed to preserve the buildings conditions.
Over time, the tourism and the increased business opportunities will restore the money that was spent on the project, and would help Carys economy.Mariam Jamal Cary
